Here Are the Cheapest Porsche Models for Sale on Autotrader

If you’re interested in buying a Porsche, you probably know they’re pretty expensive — and they can be very expensive to own, maintain and repair, too. But some Porsche models are really, really cheap — and I’ve rounded up five of the cheapest Porsche models currently listed for sale on Autotrader. Of course, these cars probably won’t be cheap to own, as they’re older and have high mileage — but at least they prove you can get into a Porsche without spending huge money.

2000 Porsche Boxster

2000 Porsche Boxster – $3,000

The very cheapest Porsche on Autotrader is this Boxster — but don’t get too excited that you’ve managed to find a $3,000 Boxster that runs and drives. This particular car is a failed EV conversion. The owner tried to convert it to electric, but gave up during the process. Now it sits unfinished, needing batteries and other items. It’s offered by a private seller in San Francisco for just $3,000. Find a Porsche Boxster for sale

1985 Porsche 944

1985 Porsche 944 – $3,795

This Porsche 944 is the second-cheapest Porsche currently listed for sale on Autotrader — but, again, don’t get too excited. This 944 is a flood vehicle, meaning it likely needs some work to get it running again, and possible a lot of work. It’s also missing its rear glass, which is an important (and pricey) part in the 944. This 944 is also an automatic, which makes it less desirable to enthusiasts than a manual. It’s offered by East Coast Auto Source in Virginia for just $3,795. Find a Porsche 944 for sale

1987 Porsche 924

1987 Porsche 924 – $3,895

Although the Porsche 924 is often considered one of the least desirable Porsche models for enthusiasts, it’s still a Porsche — and it’s still exciting to drive. This particular 1987 924 has 65,000 miles and an automatic transmission, the latter being the reason it’s likely so cheap. It’s offered by a private seller in Pompano Beach, Florida, for $3,895, which is an easy way to enter the Porsche world — and it’s the cheapest running and driving Porsche on our list. Find a Porsche 924 for sale

2006 Porsche Cayenne S

2006 Porsche Cayenne S – $4,995

Early examples of the Porsche Cayenne are getting cheap, and this is the cheapest one listed for sale on Autotrader. It’s a Cayenne S, which means it has V8 power — though this one is so cheap because of its miles, as it’s traveled over 180,000 miles from new. Still, it looks to be in surprisingly nice condition — and it’s offered by a private seller in the Los Angeles area for $4,995. Find a Porsche Cayenne for sale

2000 Porsche 911 Carrera

2000 Porsche 911 Carrera – $10,990

This is the very cheapest 911 currently listed for sale on Autotrader. Not surprisingly, it checks all the boxes for a cheap 911: It’s a 996 model, which is the least desirable version according to Porsche purists. It’s a high-mileage car, having traveled around 110,000 miles from new. And it’s an automatic, which is less desirable. But it’s still a 911 for $10,990, though you’ll have to verify that it runs and drives acceptably. It’s offered by Executive Auto Sales and Leasing in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Find a Porsche 911 for sale

  1. You can get a 968 with reasonable miles for around $15-20k. Those are cool, since they’re the final, safest, and most powerful evolution of the 924/944 and they’re pretty rare too, only about 4500 sent to the US over 4 years of production.

  2. I live in Green Bay and stopped and looked at that yellow 911 tonight last night. Looks to be in nice shape for all those miles. Too bad it’s an automatic.
